Clientele “Point & Shoot” Collection

Clientele has released the “Point & Shoot” Collection today, which focuses on two of music‘s greatest photographers of all time. The Collection shows images by Lee Jaffe and Adrian Boot. The first being of a young Michael Jackson’s first visit to Jamaica and Lee “Scratch” Perry. The Jackson shirt will be available in 5 colorways and the Lee Perry n 4 colorways; both limited to 72 pieces.

“Lee Jaffe was blessed with the art gene in the same way he was blessed with being in the right place at the right time. Jaffe first met Bob Marley in New York City in 1973, Marley had reached fame in Jamaica, but was little known in the US. Their friendship solidified quickly resulting in Jaffe becoming the harmonica player for the Wailers. This new position with Marley’s Band gave Jaffe a front row seat to Marley’s growth to fame in the US and the entire world. He was able to catalog those years through an array of vivid photographs. His connection to reggae grew later producing Peter Tosh’s “Legalize It,” even contributing the legendary cover photograph.

Adrian Boot is a photographer with being in the right place consistently figure out, he puts himself there. Adrian’s true gift is his eye for the shot. Whether it be taking shots of the Sex Pistols in London, Marley in Jamaica, Nelson Mandela in South Africa, Roger Waters at the Berlin Wall, The Grateful Dead in Egypt, and Green Peace in the Soviet Union, Adrian’s eye finds an epic piece of art.”

The tees are now available here.
